Don’t Be Hatin’ the 5

Has anyone else noticed the incredible amount of animosity being shown to those who would would dare purchase the iPhone 5 by those in the technology world?

I just saw a post on Google+ with the following caption…

iPhone 5… For those with more money than sense.

Comments such as these are everywhere. Apple didn’t change the 5 enough. Other companies are pushing the envelope. It’s the same phone in a different package.

Let’s see… the company that basically invented the smart phone as we know it has released the latest iteration of arguably the most popular consumer electronics product in the history of the world, and those that wish to purchase said item are elitist and dumb?

You don’t have to be an Apple fan to see that as a misguided premise.
